    China grants preliminary approval for 38 new Trump trademarks

    China has granted preliminary approval for 38 new Trump trademarks, paving the way for President Donald Trump and his family to develop a host of branded businesses from hotels to insurance to bodyguard and escort services, public documents show.

    Trump's lawyers in China applied for the marks in April 2016, as Trump railed against China at campaign rallies, accusing it of currency manipulation and stealing US jobs. Critics maintain that Trump's swelling portfolio of China trademarks raises serious conflict-of-interest questions.

    China's Trademark Office published the provisional approvals on February 27 and Monday.

    If no one objects, they will be formally registered after 90 days. All but three are in the president's own name. China already registered one trademark to the president, for Trump-branded construction services, on February 14.
    "Escort services"?

    Dan Plane, a director at Simone IP Services, a Hong Kong intellectual-property consultancy, said he had never seen so many applications approved so quickly. "For all these marks to sail through so quickly and cleanly, with no similar marks, no identical marks, no issues with specifications — boy, it's weird," he said.
    Yes, it is weird.

    "A routine trademark, patent, or copyright from a foreign government is likely not an unconstitutional emolument, but with so many trademarks being granted over such a short time period, the question arises as to whether there is an accommodation in at least some of them," he said.

    Good news from the article:

    Painter is involved in a lawsuit alleging that Trump's foreign business ties violate the US Constitution. Trump has dismissed the lawsuit as "totally without merit."
    This suit may not come to anything till after he's out of office, but it could lead to Trump being forced to release his tax returns.

    Actually we don't even care.

    Only the left thinks this is something newsworthy.
